Do you consider yourself a leader? An individual may not possess the most obvious or stereotypical leadership qualities, but everyone has a skill set they can use to enhance themselves, a team, and others around them. Everyone can be a leader in their own right – let us show you how to Unlock the Leader Within.
Leadership is an evolution; an on-going process involving continuous learning from entry-level to management and beyond. You can be a leader in your community, in your classroom and even among your friends.
Come to our panel discussion to learn from our leadership coaches; guests will also have the opportunity to have a free headshot taken. You will also get insights on using internal and external resources to improve your leadership abilities through Knowledge, Skills, Abilities, and Other Characteristics (KSAOs). Learn how to capitalize on strengths to compensate for weaknesses in order to be the “full package”. Whether you consider yourself a leader or not, everyone can benefit from Unlocking the Leader Within.
A great leader needs a great LinkedIn profile: The first 50 people to arrive will be guaranteed a free headshot for your LinkedIn profile!
